Savannah Smith only needs thirty seconds of your time to win you over. In a world filled to its brim with would-be young singer-songwriters, Savannah’s vocal prowess, and her absolute mastery of crafting raw and gritty emotion into beautiful melodies, defines her from the crowd in moments.
Her stage show all her own; Savannah introduces her music with an irresistible charm, ushering the listener into her world with casual ease before effusing desperate and earnest emotion in each song. Her lyrics darken the bright chords and create a depth in her music that reaches far beyond her years.
Savannah never intended to be a songwriter or musician. Though always fond of singing, she only began to write music after a friend purchased her a ukulele. The uke soon became an avenue of deep expression through songwriting. After posting “Ventriloquism” on Youtube, Savannah immediately began to gain attention for her work. After the release of her 2011 Debut EP, Leaving Eau Claire, Savannah began touring the country.
Now, twenty-three, Savannah has showcased her music all over with appearances at The CMJ Music Marathon, SXSW, Daytrotter, Midwest Music Fest, The UMS, Rock The Vine, and The Minnesota State Fair, Summerfest, the Basilica Block Party as well as many other festivals, television, and radio appearances. 2013 is gearing up to be her busiest year yet with plans for a live album as well as a full length studio album and dates at this year’s SXSW, CMJ and several summer festivals in her native Midwest.
